The Origins And History Of Consciousness

by Erich Neumann

The Origins And History Of Consciousness

Erich Neumann

Overview

Around the world, the myths of different cultures have a great deal in common. In this classic piece of analytic psychology, Carl Jung's most influential student Erich Neumann argues that this is because myths express the way in which human consciousness evolves from the unconscious.

By drawing on a vast array of material, Neumann makes the claim that mythology teaches us about the way in which both the consciousness of the collective human race developed, as well as the ways in which consciousness develops within each individual over the course of their lifetime.

Aside from the psychologically therapeutic effects such information might have, Neumann also uses his theories to provide insights into the state of modern society.

Favorite Quote

"It is the task of this book to show that a series of archetypes is a main constituent of mythology, that they stand in an organic relation to one another, and that their stadial succession determines the growth of consciousness."
